Cate Jeffries is a 2021 graduate of Oklahoma City University School of Law, but she is by no means new to the law. Before she became an attorney, Cate served as a spokesperson and legislative liaison for one of Oklahoma’s largest state agencies. Her background in government relations and corporate communications, as well as her legal experience, has allowed her to work closely with the law in every stage of its life cycle. Cate has not only guided bills through the legislative process, but also has firsthand experience in how the law is interpreted by judges, enforced by state and federal agencies, and litigated by private attorneys.
During law school, Cate received a CALI award for excellence in legal research and writing and regularly appeared on honor rolls. She was named a Distinguished Member of the Oklahoma City Law Review and later served as Assistant Resource Editor. After representing OCU Law in moot court and mock trial competitions, Cate was inducted into Order of the Barristers. She was also a member of the William J. Holloway Inn of Court. In addition to earning a Doctor of Jurisprudence, Cate received a Bachelor of Arts degree in public relations and business from University of Central Oklahoma.
